    Shooting Areas in Washoe County Safe distance from residence requirements

    I could swear the the NRS states 1000 yds from any residence, I can't find it with a quick search. Is that in the NRS or is it Washoe County?

    Just looked at this one and many of my favorite places, while over 1 mile away from any residence, are still within the "restricted" areas on the WCSO map, the area behind Sage Hill and past Moss Lake

    just get a .45 and a can, anyone asks any questions tell them you were doing some remodeling inside.... since a .45 with a can sounds like a quiet nail gun. lol

    This is one of the few instances where the counties and cities still have control over firearms regulation. This sheriff has gone over board with the regs. He has since put red circles around every known house in our area to stop shooting. We still shoot as many people have safe shooting ranges on their own property. Be careful.

    Basically don't go shooting in Washoe County unless you are getting there with an ATV and you are far out in the absolute middle of nowhere. Anyplace a sheriff car or SUV can get to you they will find you and ticket you. I have an $800 attorney bill to prove it.

    Where in the hell do you go? I can go about a mile and a half from my house by bicycle, car, or whatever out here in Cold Springs and shoot to my hearts content with no issues.

    I know a lot of people, including myself. That go up behind Spanish Springs high school or further up eagle canyon. If you need help locating some spots let me know! We could meet up and I'd be happy to show you.

    Pretty sure the spot behind the high school always packed with trash is actually too close to legally shoot but I never go there so I don't check it on the map.

    Right behind the school may be. But I know some side roads that split off Eagle Canyon further up. I'm pretty sure they are way past safe!

    Hope so. I'm assuming you're talking about going further past the school, around the bend, then taking the left before you hit Indian land. Same place where people dump a bunch of stuff, ride motorcycles, and travel to the North Valleys instead of taking McCarran or goin through sun valley.

    better map than the one on the sheriff's website.

    Yaaa. You can go left or I believe if you go a little further there is a right you can take. A lot of people shoot over that direction as well.

    Keep in mind on forest service land (Peavine and Mt Rose etc) you cannot legally shoot from or across a forest service road. You also cannot shoot into or across an open body of water on forest service land. Damn near got a ticket for that. Glad the guy was nice about it. Anyone notice that radio towers are considered occupied places on the congested area map? No rifles or pistols on top of Peavine. Can't hunt rabbits with a 22 up there, eh? What a crock.

    There are tons of areas. Take stead blvd north, stay right onto mt vida, turn right on bravo ave it turns into albert way, turn left on ramsey way, turn right on lemmon drive, turn left on chickadee. Follow that into desert and stay to the left on the main dirt roads. Make sure you are out far enough out and that you clean up what ever trash you make leave it cleaner than you found it. Lots of other areas around too. Happy shooting.

Massad says to tell the officer that you have a ccw and that you do have a weapon and you should explain where it is. This will keep the officer on your side and not alarm him that he has a maniac ..... Today I did whati just explained plus told him about the other guns I had in my truck and also explained I was gonna take them out later to practice. I also told him that they were all unloaded . This might not be the best way but it worked for me today.
    So you did t get a ticket for shooting you had expired tags and then you were told its not a legal spot anymore correct?

    i go to lockwood to shoot, take the road south out of lockwood to the last bridge before the gates on the paved road, either go right past the bridge into the canyon about a 1/2 mile there is a nice valley with good backstops, or go left just before the bridge and park, follow the creek bed in about a 1/4 mile off the roadway and there is a good place there as well. i spoke to a STOREY county sheriff before i went in and asked him where would be a good place to shoot and he told me those places were ok and i wouldnt be bothered but if there was traffic nearby wait till it was clear (basically use common sense)
